Chico Memorial Mausoleum & Columbarium Next >> Our Paradise Location


In 1930 the Chico Memorial Mausoleum was erected to serve the needs of the community.  Since then, new corridors have been added, creating Chico's only exclusive indoor mausoleum and columbarium.  Upon entering the mausoleum, you are greeted with a sweeping wall mural of the Last Supper, and as you proceed past each corridor, there are beautiful stained glass windows, each with their own story.

The columbarium offers marble, bronze and glass face niches, and the mausoleum's exquisite Italian marble provides a beautiful, lasting memory for family members down through the ages.  For those who prefer clean, dry, and permanent memorials, Chico Memorial Mausoleum is the area's finest.  The choice for mausoleum burial is increasing, thus we have an exciting new expansion plan for the near future.

Isn't Mausoleum expensive?
No. In the past, mausoleum burial was associated with only the rich and famous.  This is no longer true!! Due to technological breakthroughs, it is possible to own a crypt in this beautiful mausoleum for less or equal to earth burial.

Why should we buy now?
First, be certain of getting crypts of your choice. Second, it is always wiser and easier to select any type of cemetery property ahead of actual need.

Must we pay in full at the time of purchase?
No, payments may be spread over a length of time.

What is a Niche? A niche is a place in our Mausoleum that allows you to place your loved one's urn as well as mementos and small treasures inside a glass or marble case.



Forever Remembered Tree

Another beautiful feature of the Chapel of Light is the "Forever Remembered" Tree.  

The individually engraved leaves bear the names of those who have been scattered at sea, or whose resting place is in another part of the country.
Next to the "Forever Remembered" Tree is a soothing waterfall.
